1. What did the Supreme Court decide in the Wal-Mart case? And more importantly, how did it justify its decision? (HINT: the key word here is “commonality” (and how it related to “class-action lawsuit”). Try to understand what this legal terms means, as it is key to the court’s decision).

In the Wal-Mart case lawsuit against his former employer, for disability discrimination and intentional infliction of emotional distress. According to Wal Mart, Canchola was terminated for violating the company’s sexual harassment policies. After a jury trial, the trial court rendered judgment in Canchola’s favor. The court of appeals affirmed the trial court’s judgment. Wal-Mart challenges the judgment on a number of grounds, including the legal sufficiency of the evidence to support the jury’s verdict. The Supreme Court announced that the company was ought to compensate for each and every employee that was working at the time when the store abruptly shut. To me the U.s Supreme Court was partitioned. Notwithstanding the way that the high court never gave a decision looking into the issue preferences, the somewhat misguided choice safe houses ladies who worked at Wal-Mart from handling America’s greatest private executive as a brought together gathering the country over constraining every lady to by and by record her suppositions or rather in therapist, activity bunches. The incomparable court disregarded more than forty years of respectable statute and persistently obliged the shots of the specialists to fight separation as a class movement unit. All the more essentially, the court’s tremendously traditionalist judgment gave a ton of center to the sheer frequency of a corporate against separation structure, in spite of the way that the skeleton appeared to be not to have been stuck to. The court’s choice appears to give a dim future sign to further laborers class activity cases and a guaranteeing future for bosses to proceed utilizing very biased compensation and sex separation exercises.
